Horrible Histories: Gorgeous Georgians

The classic bestseller – now with a nastier new look! No more boring nice-guy nonsense about history. It’s time to learn it the horrible way. The gorgeous Georgians liked looking good. They loved prancing about in powdered wigs and pantaloons. But don’t be fooled by their daft disguises. They were really rotten underneath! They wore false teeth stolen from dead bodies. (Bleugh.) They peed in portable gravy boats (Yuck.) They even wore toxic make-up made of horse poo. (Eeek.) But at least kids your age didn’t have to work longer than 12 hours a day any more…
